Top 25 Movies on IMDB

The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) is a website the allows members (no cost to join) rate movies on a 1 – 10 scale. Below are the top-rated movies with the average rating, name of the movie, year released, and the number of votes. I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorites, The Shawshank Redemption, in the number 2 spot.

The site is filled with great information and reviews of thousands of movies.
